A Fargo man attempting to ice fish on Sanborn Lake 11:54 a.m. Tuesday fell through the ice into water up to his waist, and was so embarrassed he drove back home declining treatment, said Valley City Fire Chief Gary Retterath.
Barnes County Sheriff Randy McClaflin said Wednesday, â€śhe went in the water up to his waist, got cold and declined treatment.â€ť
McClaflin said he could not understand why anybody would try to ice fish on the last day of April. â€śI hope he won't repeat and it is a lesson learned.â€ť
